NOTE: AI pertains to any driver, pedestrian, or pedalcyclist involved in the accident. Alcohol results are determined from positive blood alcohol concentration tests and police-reported alcohol involvement and are adjusted by the U.S. Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. AI numbers may not equal totals due to rounding.

KEY: AI = Alcohol involvement; Fatal = Fatalities
